Artificial Intelligence Software Learns to Play Super Mario Bros.

Forget about beating human chess grandmasters. Now computer scientists have challenged the best AI programs to beat Nintendo's "Super Mario Bros.," and perhaps evolve along the way.

The new competition would pit different AI design approaches against one another, such as programs based on evolutionary learning techniques versus completely hand-coded programs. It uses a heavily modified, Java-based version of "Super Mario Bros." as a virtual playground for the AIs, with the added challenge of endless random level generation.

The story is too old to be commented.
